Chilled Cornwall its - the Highcliffe B&B Falmouth

2nd October, 2015

Well the journey is shorter than to Skye and the weather is very warm. But here's the thing the sea takes on different moods and appearances according to the weather and its extremeties. My photos of Skye are different from Cornwall because of weather conditions

I arrive at Highcliffe B&B ( check out my Facebook page for details of this B&B and in the meantime it is I receive a warm welcome from Simon of Simon and Vanessa. Simon has printed out all the times of the local trains I need to St Ives and also advises on places to go in Falmouth including crossing to St Mawes where there are good beaches and walks. I am shown to Room 6. I was advised to come when Room 6 was free as it has a great view of the harbour which would inspire an artist-it certainly has a fantastic view. Highcliffe is as delightful as in the images I had seen and the attention to detail is everywhere. This can especially be seen in the light and bright breakfast area with its painted chairs and lovely distressed dresser.

In the morning the breakfast is also amazing. There is always a special, a selection of serials grains with nuts and yogurt including Greek yogurt as well as a whole menu of other yummy recipes. There is a selection of teas, I have Cornish tea and there is coffee also. The service is warm bright and cheerful delivered by people who consider other people. You are not just a client you are a guest.They make everybody feel special.

Falmouth itself is a mixture of the meeting of the English Chanel and the Atlantic in the same manner as East meets West!!!  So after a great breakfast I set off to explore the town its harbour and Maritime Museum before taking the ferry to St Mawes.
